The San Francisco 49ers are back for Saturday afternoon practice at training camp. The team is a week away from their preseason debut, which means position battles are heating up. Saturday's practice gets going at 4:15 p.m. PT. The team announced this practice will be in shells, which includes helmets and shoulder pads, but not full pads.
NN has a representative in attendance, as Jennifer Lee Chan is attending practice today and tomorrow. I have included her in the Twitter media list, so you can follow along in there. If you are on Twitter, you can follow her @jenniferleechan. Jennifer and the rest of the media will have recaps following practice. I'll be back with a recap of the recaps later tonight, and Jennifer will have something tomorrow.
The team has added outside linebacker Shawn Lemon, and he will be practicing for the first time with the team. The OLB competition is an interesting one considering the departure of Aldon Smith. Lemon is competing with Corey Lemonier and Marcus Rush for a fourth roster spot. We'll see what the former CFL product brings to the table in pass rush drills.
